I’m honored to be a part of CX.City’s “Creative Minds, Creative Spaces” series. My interview went live today. It gives a little bit of insight on my creative process, space and routine (or lack thereof). Check it out if you feel so inclined, and if you’re in the market for some new threads, I’d highly recommend checking out CX.City’s gear. They sent me a box of tees and hats a couple weeks ago, and it’s really all I’ve been wearing ever since.
The world is supposed to end in like twenty minutes or whatever so … I posted an idea that has been floating around for a couple of months.
Here’s me trying to make sense of it (or anything) to the best of my ability:
It’s been fairly quiet here for a while, and I’d like to apologize for that. With a ton of change comes a ton of introspection and … a ton of uncertainty. I’m working very hard to battle through both, and have found this piece to be therapeutic for me on two fronts: as composer and listener.
There’s a story behind this track, and a lot of it has to do with the fear of drowning (in water and/or life and what it’s made of) and the realization that the air/relief we seek often lies in life’s simplest things; music, companionship, family, friends, etc. Something about this track signifies the hopelessness and helplessness that sinking might feel like, but its finish feels like the return to clarity that I think we’re all seeking on some level. (Also: it’s very simple, per the larger point here.)
Eventually, I’ll explain that story in-full eventually, but for now I just hope that you’ll enjoy this song to some extent and stay tuned for what’s to come here. I’m hoping to have a few more songs ready for early next year, and I really, really appreciate the support of those of who you’ve given a damn to check out what I’ve been doing post-Thrice. It’s encouraging and comforting. I’m incredibly grateful for that.
Happy holidays or end of the world or whatever.
